  1. Grasping Low Pressure EGR

    My thick head might be finally getting it. Confusion was having the LP in addition to the HP and seeing them as two separate parts. If I’m now grasping this correctly. All exhaust gas first travels through the DPF then through the water cooled LP Cooler then LP pipe then through the HP pipe? No...
  2. EGR Preventative Maintenance

    I’m trying real hard to find peace with soot. Diesel still a mystery in many ways. I’m thinking that removal of the EGR periodically for cleaning will help prolong the life of the engine. Deletion is not an option and just letting it accumulate seems senseless. Video brings up good points...
  3. EcoDiesel Rebuild

    Emissions are freaking me out. I’m environmentally conscious so I’m not deleting anything even if tuners were suddenly available again but my plans are to retire my Jeep from DD in four years and would love to have an off-road specific vehicle void of emission related issues. Can this diesel be...
  4. Diesel Spotted

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.motor1.com/news/351174/jeep-wrangler-diesel-spied-plain-sight/amp/ I’m seeing it was 23 hours ago. Can it be true?
  5. Max Tow At Boat Ramp

    Considering the storage of a future boat purchase at a marina that has a ramp with trailer storage close by. My question is how heavy a boat and trailer is possible beyond the manufacturer recommendation and still able to pull it out of the water at the ramp. Details: JL Rubicon Unlimited 6...
  6. Avoid the diesel?

    Does this guy have valid points? Is he possibly relying too much on the earliest versions and not accounting for corrections? I recall the Pentastar had early problems that took three years or so to resolve and now considered by many bullet proof. Perhaps the newest ED will follow the same path.
  7. BSG Experience?

    Wondering what the experience is like. I’ve driven ESS and wasn’t impressed. Probably can learn to live with it but hoping with BSG it was a seemless transition from stop to start. Any enjoying the BSG going from stop to start on the 2.0?
  8. FLORIDA & BEAD LOCKS

    I live in South Florida and almost anything goes with Jeeps but I'm told one could get pulled over for bead locks. Curious to know of those that live anywhere in the state and their experience with law enforcement and bead locks. I know most are not DOT approved but see them all the time so...
  9. Diesel Requiring Dana 60?

    Considering the JL was designed from the ground up to run 35s and both front and rear Dana 44 beefed up then wouldn’t it be logical that the diesel would have to be upgraded to Dana 60 for at least the rear and possibly front on Rubicon models. 400 plus torque with 35s with 4:10s and that 4:1...
  10. rear doors lock when front doors removed

    If I remove the front doors than am I able to lock the rear doors. No unwanted guest entering my six.
  11. Diesel and Big Tires

    Since diesels get improved mileage over gas underload such as when pulling a trailer than is it fair to assume they also would have increased mileage with unsprung weight over gas? Going to 37 or even 42 would not be as big a drain on MPG as with a gas engine. Including adding beefier axles such...
  12. GRAND CHEROKEE DIESEL SUPPLEMENT - REQUIRED READING

    Go to Jeep website, download Grand Cherokee Owners Manual Diesel supplement. Thought I could provide link but that wasn't working. Something future buyers might want to familiarize themselves with. Perhaps we can live with the DPF, if we follow these guidelines. Not going to be an issue for...
  13. Waterproof Interior

    My first and last Jeeps we’re both YJ so been a while. Come summer the soft top and its rails came off along with the doors. Nothing more than a bikini top and on days I knew it was going to rain the doors went back on just to protect myself from side rain. Didn’t care about the interior. Worse...
  14. Dana 60 Increaded Towing?

    Safe to assume that upgrading to Dana 60 will increase the towing capacity of the JL? Is there something else to consider and how would one estimate that increase? I want to tow a boat and 3500 isn't enough. Engine won't increase it as it's platform driven but axles do. My understanding. Help.
  15. RUBICON DANA 44 STRONG ENOUGHFOR 37s?

    Seen some rumblings from Dynatrac based on external review and now have seen the R&P but has anyone taken these apart and examine the internals or perhaps taken them off-road with 37s and compared to JK Dana 44 or possibly having a set of ProRock 44s as comparison? I'd love to stay stock and not...
  16. 2019 So Close...

    I want to order now but waiting on more details for the 2.0L and now I've seen orders for 2019 start late September. Any others thinking it's late enough in 18 to just wait a few more months/ There's also that 3.0 diesel we keep hearing about. Not sure I really want one but I might. Are the...
  17. Gotta Get Flat Fenders

    I'm liking just about every change on the JL but those fenders with the blinkers integrated. They are coming off. Any ideas on relocating the blinkers? Where I live (South Florida) the law don't seem to care but I plan on traveling with my jeep and not looking for trouble. Chances are most flat...
  18. AC SHUT OFF

    Tired of searching so just going to ask. I live in South Florida where running the AC is a requirement 360 days a year and the other five are questionable. Saw a video on the 2.0L claiming there's not enough battery to run the AC at a stop light which gives me concern because part of the allure...
